According to latest nreports Norwich want £8m for Idah
Celtic cannot complain as we are asking £6m for Mikey
All selling clubs play this game to get as much money as possible for their player.

Hopefully Norwich want Mickey and £2M for Idah. ?.


2.) 14 Jun 2024 13:48:18
Tin, as far as I'm aware Norwich haven't set a price for Adam Idah and why would they?

Celtic will k ow what they value the ayer at, a player who 6 months ago was in the reserves at Norwich.

If the price is silly then Norwich could well be left with an unhappy player and no takers.

Hopefully common sense will prevail.

All just rumours at this point but if true, it's a dangerous game to play. The higher the asking price goes, the more likely clubs are to look elsewhere to ensure best value for money. There's a real possibility you price clubs out of a move and end up stuck with a player you'd rather move on.


4.) 14 Jun 2024 16:30:27
Guys the EFL clubs have bigger budgets than Celtic also higher wage structure.
£8m in England is middle of the road as down there players go for twice that.
Even Norwich with their 20,000 ground have a bigger budget than us, and they know EFL clubs watched Idah last season and could take a punt at £8m.


 

 

30 May 2024 06:55:34
Read some posters on here want to sell Kyogo for £3m
Well reports today say that two J League teams preparing £10m bids (yes TEN MILLION)
I like Kyogo but he has been hibdered by shoulder problems (hope he gets it looked at during close season) and also by way team plays under Brendan
If we sell him, we must use all of that money to bring in a better replacement EDOUARD?

Timalloy

1.) 30 May 2024 07:55:17
To get someone of kyogos quality would cost significantly more than what we would recoup for him even if we got 10m for him he is only 29 and is easily one of the best finishers we've had at the club. He is the only established striker at the club so we simply can't risk losing him.

And if I'm being totally honest 10m isn't enough to sell kyogo when he is on form he's almost unplayable, if I were BR I would be ignoring those sort of bids.

I hope we are still in the Jleague market there are some crackers in that league, Kuryu Matsuki, riku yamane, Mao hosoya (just as quick as maeda)


2.) 30 May 2024 09:22:10
Kyogo worth more in squad than sold. We already need at least one but imo two strikers without losing him.


3.) 30 May 2024 10:34:06
3m is a joke his record since his time with us is very good and he's scored in big games especially sevco. yes he misses a fair few but so do most strikers ad be looking for double figures.


4.) 30 May 2024 11:55:49
29, contract until '27, if anyone wants him we should ask for £15m
If we got that it would cover Idah and Miovski.


5.) 30 May 2024 18:43:02
I said yesterday that I think we would only get around 3m for Kyogo if he went to europe or back home. 10m+ is just nonsense for a 29 Yr old playing in spfl. Today's game is all about bank balance as we continue to find to our detriment. FFP and balancing books and all that nonsense. If he was 26 with 1 more sell on value then aye, 10m. At 29 no chance.


6.) 31 May 2024 12:49:57
Even if we look at the Championship in England. A 29yr old striker who has scored over 70 goals in 3 season would go for a hell of a lot more than £3m.
Now I don't want him to go but if a team from Japan, England or even Saudi comes in for him then we need to stop selling our players for buttons.


7.) 01 Jun 2024 09:23:38
Maybe kyogo wants to move on to another league to try his luck there. He isn't suited to Rodgers sideways and backwards football he needs to be in a ast attacking side.


8.) 02 Jun 2024 22:16:28
I doubt we would get £10m for a 29 year old and if we were offered that I would sell as his value is only going to plummet once he hits 30. If it’s £5m or less I’d keep him, he’s unplayable when he’s playing on the shoulder of last man and his movement is as good as I’ve seen so I’d be sorry to see him leave but if it’s 8 figures and it funds Edouard deal then fair enough.


 

 

29 May 2024 09:06:44
Do not know how true this rumour is but it is going around some Celtic sites
Idah may NOT be coming back as Norwich want between £7m to £9m for him
There is no way Celtic will pay that kind of money.

Timalloy

1.) 29 May 2024 09:55:24
I'd pay that fee Tim. If Rodgers really wants him I think he would sanction it. He was allowed to break the transfer record before so he might be allowed to equal it again.


2.) 29 May 2024 11:09:15
We've got the money so it's up to the board to back the manager who's done not too shabby on a shoestring budget.


3.) 29 May 2024 11:32:33
If Idah wants to move to Celtic and Celtic want Idah he will be here next season.


4.) 29 May 2024 12:00:21
If he was our first choice striker pay the money. But I don't think he's quite our first choice so wouldn't be willing to spend that much 4.5-6 million tops. There is better in the market around the £10 million.


5.) 29 May 2024 12:26:38
I would rather bring Edouard back.

Crystal Palace might sell because he’s into his last year of his contract.

Edouard is still only 26 and his best years are ahead of him.
He also played brilliantly previously for Brendan.


6.) 29 May 2024 12:39:38
So if he stays put, first thing his agent does is ask for wage rise, if Norwich now consider him at that value. Didn’t sevco make that mistake with ‘fatboy’?


7.) 29 May 2024 12:45:46
Players settle once their future is sorted and I think we'd be getting g a better plater. he does a job and pulled us out of a few holes he's mobile has a trick and he's physical. or we could sign a foreigner foe 5m and he turns out sh@t as per at least we know what we're getting Adam.


8.) 29 May 2024 13:03:26
Guys only point I was making was Norwich were happy to sell him for £4m plus but now they see a way of doubling their asking price, they are chancing their arm
Edouard is a good shout as is Miovski
We have options tell Norwich to take a hike.


9.) 29 May 2024 14:19:43
Knight Mair 7 . Of all these posts about Idah, yours is the one I think sums up the situation the best . It was a rule of thumb I used to use many years ago, maybe half a century ago, if both want it to happen a way will be found .
Cost is only. a figure, if we sign him at a high figure and he does very well, he will be seen as a bargain, if we sign him at the lower end off the scale and he doesn’t play well, he will be regarded as a big lump and a waste of money .
There is never a guarantee that a transferred player will do well but Idah has certainly exceeded everyone’s expectation that we had last January.


10.) 29 May 2024 14:41:07
Unfortunately for us, they're entitled to ask for as much money as they want. There's a couple of rumours going about that Kyogo could leave so if we got a similar fee to what we'd be paying for Idah, him and another speedy striker would be ideal. We're still left with the issue of Oh, who seems miles out of the picture.


11.) 29 May 2024 15:33:58
A lot will come down to idahs preferance. I think 6m would be accepted.
Look at it this way. mikey js situation is very similar. He has been poor for us but done well at his loan club, same with idah. Does mikey have a future at celtic just because he has done well last 6 months, massive no from me. he's had his chances as norwich will see the same with idah.
Theyll be happy for him to move on at a fair price. Which i reckon would be 6m.
Bring in miovski too for 4m and move kyogo on for at least 10m. that's the frontline sorted without losing any money.
Edouard would be a decent shout. Im not 1 for taking players back but he is still young. If he's in his last year i wouldn't pay anymore than 6/ 7m.


12.) 29 May 2024 17:19:30
Don't see any way you're getting Miovski for £4m tbh.


13.) 29 May 2024 17:47:14
We won't get much more than our money back on kyogo. I don't think he'll go to pub league so Europe or back home for 3m. Miovski I don't think would cut it at Celtic. Just a feeling and it would be over 5m to get him. If it's 7-9m for Idah I'd be all over it. The Moose MkII.


14.) 29 May 2024 21:02:01
I would rather sign Idah than Edouard tbh and French Eddys (currently on 90k) wages might be an issue. Miovski would cost a similar amount as Idah and we know that Idah has settled in already so there’s no gamble. £6m with add ins and Idah signs with £20k wages approx. Edouard would cost £10m with £60k wages per season if we would even stretch to that and if I’m honest he’s been bang average in EPL in 3 seasons he’s had about 5 stand out games.
I wouldn’t be quick to sell Kyogo either he’s a different option for us running in behind on shoulder of defence unless we were to receive a huge sum that I can’t see happening.


15.) 29 May 2024 21:59:56
I didn’t realise Edouard’s wages were as high.
The search continues.


16.) 30 May 2024 06:25:33
Norwich will do what any team would do and that is hold out for best offer, if they decide to sell.

Idah himself will have a say in this and I for one think if he gets an offer from PL he will have a difficult decision to make. His love for this club verses better wages. I know where his agent will tell him to go.

I also think the idea of selling Kyogo is or should be a non starter. He is by far the best finisher we have and yes he at times struggles with the way we play under BR but I put that down to our wide men not getting the ball into the box quick enough.

If we start moving the ball quicker and Hatate gets back to his best, with his eye for a pass, Kyogo can and will score more goals. It is our painfully slow build up that holds him back.

I keep hearing Kyogo looks uninterested nd not involved, however if you watch him, he is still making the same runs, however the service to him is very poor.


17.) 30 May 2024 16:52:21
Kyogo is going to be a big player next season simple as that.


18.) 01 Jun 2024 21:10:35
Idah will be a bigger player than Kyogo .
Idah is 6’2” and little Kyogo is 5’ 7 “
The only reason Kyogo may want to leave and return to Japan is because some of our big brave SPL defenders take special delight in roughing him up.
I remember in a game before we played Sevco, a defender grabbed his arm that was attached to Kyogo’s shoulder that was causing him trouble, and pulled it strongly .


 

 

14 May 2024 10:52:30
It's looking like O'Riley could be off, apparently two EPL sides interested, and when a player posts about "The Celtic Family" you just KNOW he is off
Realistically what can we get for him is £20m asking too much.

Timalloy

1.) 14 May 2024 11:49:19
ORiley should break the transfer fee we have received in my opinion. Best player we’ve had in 20 years.


2.) 14 May 2024 11:52:55
£20M is the minimum we should be asking, Tim. He still has 3 years on his deal and he's been fantastic for us, particularly this season. He's had some big moments in the derbies and CL games too. Admittedly, he had a dip for a few games after intense January speculation but overall he's been brilliant.


3.) 14 May 2024 12:06:37
If its to the epl then minimum 20 million with atleast as 15% sell on. After 2 seasons down there he could well be off for 80 million. We need to make sure we get as much as we possibly can.


4.) 14 May 2024 12:08:23
Forgot to add, I'd prefer to keep him if possible for the champions league games and then sell in January if he actually wants to go. Id love us to have a strong squad for europe and actually not get embarrassed this time.


5.) 14 May 2024 13:03:08
We're cash rich don't sell for once and break the mold.


6.) 14 May 2024 13:29:40
It wouldn't be fair holding O'Riley back when he can at least triple his wages in a bigger league.


7.) 14 May 2024 13:44:57
Hoping MOR might stick around for champions league next season. If he was to be sold surely we must be looking at minimum 25 million with a 15 -20% sell on clause.


8.) 14 May 2024 16:00:26
Agree with you there Buzz. The Atletico move would have been very appealing in January so there was probably a gentleman's agreement for him to stick around, help us win the league and then he'd be allowed to move on. We need to try and keep our best players but there has to be a willingness to let them progress their careers in order to keep attracting these guys.

{Ed007's Note - It was a loan with an option to buy Atletico offered Celtic, it never even got to the stage of it being an issue, Celtic told the Spaniards and MOR's agent there would be no loan and that was it, dead in the water straight off the bat.
They wanted MOR on loan, Celtic hunted them, it was only because Atletico had contacted the agent that Celtic even bothered informing him of their decision.


9.) 14 May 2024 16:09:18
For what it's worth, if we're playing 'what do you value him at? ' - I wouldn't want any less than 25m with a good sell on peecentage, let's say 15%.

{Ed007's Note - I said to Ter earlier, £30m + 20% add-on


10.) 14 May 2024 16:28:14
Bids should start at £25m, we should get a good sell-on clause of around 10-15% also.
Depending on what team he ends up going to we should also ask if we can get him back on a 12mth loan where he could possibly be recalled in Jan to help us our in the CL.


11.) 14 May 2024 16:36:24
Yours sounds better Ed. I was trying my best to do it without my tinted specs. There's always that feeling that we win't command the rates other leagues do for pretty average players. When you think that muppet Silva cost 35m, MOR should be at least 70m. Now I know that's not how valuations work but a part of why we wouldn't get that is the fact we're in Scotland.

{Ed007's Note - Eventually we will sell a player for £70m - it won't be in my lifetime I don't think - simply down to inflation.}


12.) 14 May 2024 17:19:13
Fair enough Ed. Still, the club could have seen the dollar signs and been tempted by the option to buy (I wouldn't have and said that on here at the time) . Players need to be allowed to move on but the club have to make sure their own interests are met as well. It's a balancing act that we deal with very well for the most part in my opinion.

{Ed007's Note - ?


13.) 14 May 2024 23:19:18
He will easily go for 30m plus. No question. Especially if more than 1 club interested. We hold the aces with his contract still a few years to run. Best midfielder we have had since petrov.


14.) 15 May 2024 17:31:00
Think the club will be looking for £30M and 15/ 20 percent sell on. I also think that’s what we will have for our summer transfer budget.


15.) 15 May 2024 19:23:40
If us fans and our Manager and Board have any interest in attempting to improve our results in Europe we cannot contemplate selling any of our top players and certainly not M O ‘R . We are not going to buy as good a player as any of our top players. It will take a couple of seasons integrating a player of the calibre we are likely to buy, to coach a new player to the standard of what our best are currently attaining . Selling a top player immediately sets us back poorer . Yet we want to be better . If we want to keep our top players we have to ignore wages cap and pay the wages we need to play . Remember very many EPL players earning in. excess £50k per week are bankrupt before they are 40.


 

 

16 Jan 2024 19:35:46
One big rumour going around today involves CCV
Apparently West Ham and Reading are interested in signing him this transfer window.
IF we get a really good offer and IF we bring in a younger first team ready CB would you sell him.
Myself I would consider selling him in these circumstances as he seems to be more injury prone/ plagued this season
What's everyone else's thoughts.

Timalloy

1.) 16 Jan 2024 20:04:56
CCV still has 2.5 years left on his contract, so there’s no hurry to sell in this window.

There’s no doubting his ability but he’s missed 12 games already this season out of a possible 29 matches.
I would wait and see his availability for the rest of the season and then reassess in the summer.

Celtic would still get good money with 2 years left on his contract.
I think CCV is too important to the team not to take a chance on his fitness, for the second half of the season.


2.) 16 Jan 2024 20:10:39
I think we should wait until the summer. Nawrocki will have properly settled in by then and be fully first team ready. Personally think he will be the real deal.


3.) 16 Jan 2024 20:37:06
Deffo keep him till summer.


4.) 16 Jan 2024 21:36:05
Reading ???.


5.) 16 Jan 2024 22:18:04
I brought this possibility up on pod chat last week. I do not think we would miss him.


6.) 16 Jan 2024 22:25:27
I'd keep CCV till the summer. See if his game to injury ratio improves over the 2nd half of the season then take it from there. I might be wrong but my gut tells me we've seen the best of CCV.


7.) 16 Jan 2024 22:34:33
Think we should sell now. Anyone wanting to buy at this window is desperate and will pay top dollar.

We hardly had CCV this season so will not miss him. Besides how is Narocki supposed to settle in if he doesn't start getting games time? If we then sell CCV in the summer window, Nawrocki will then be trying to settle in during the chapions league ( assuming we win the league this season) .

Final point is that if we have to depend on CCV to overcome the 10 other teams in the SPL which has a total budget less than the vaue of CCV then we are really in trouble.


8.) 16 Jan 2024 22:47:49
I've heard he's in discussions over a new contract and is very happy to stay, although if he was to ever leave west ham would be the team.
That's abit of inside info.


9.) 17 Jan 2024 07:56:42
Anyone wanting to sell our best players. Have definitely bought into the Celtic plc money bug. I want Celtic to keep the best. Not sell them so the dross can settle.


10.) 17 Jan 2024 07:48:26
CCV is class and he’s a good age. Unless it’s loads of money we should be trying to keep him. It’s very unlikely we’d replace him with someone just as good or better.


11.) 17 Jan 2024 08:43:05
CCV will be away in the summer. He’s been utter crap this year!


12.) 17 Jan 2024 09:39:14
Never understand some fans obsession with selling our best players then moaning that we're not good enough.


13.) 17 Jan 2024 10:12:24
I don’t think I’ve seen CCV being utter crap since he’s played for Celtic.

He’s been hampered with injuries recently but he doesn’t make mistakes, like plenty of Centre Backs we’ve had over the years.


14.) 17 Jan 2024 11:24:54
He’s been absolutely off it and the mistakes he has made inclusive of bad positioning have cost us goals. Him and AJ have been rubbish this season. That’s a fact.


15.) 17 Jan 2024 14:18:49
We have so many bad or players playing rubbish this season, it’s amazing we are top of the league, especially with Rangers2012 getting assistance from ref and VAR operators.
I would be disappointed if CCV wanted to leave, as injuries have meant we haven’t had the real CCV this season . If he has to go, he could at least try to let us have the real CCV before we go .
Success in Europe is built with continuity and building up experience playing in the one team . CCV should be a stand out player next season, if he goes we are certain to replace him by an inferior player and any success in Europe evades us again.


16.) 17 Jan 2024 14:49:45
As much as I like CCV I would not be upset if we sold him. I only say that because of his recent injury record.


17.) 17 Jan 2024 18:59:50
It’s absolutely mental to even think about selling our best defender. CCV will probably move on in the summer but not in a title race. To make that kind of gamble would be insanity from the club.

???Enrico!


 

 

05 Jun 2024 16:07:17
Well I guess that puts the Edouard and Kelleher rumours to bed, both their clubs wan £20m+
I doubt Celtic were seriously looking anyway but those valuations mean we look elsewhere.

Timalloy

1.) 05 Jun 2024 19:04:08
Tim, like many of us have said that’s a fee for a player moving from one prem team to the other. We could get both for £20m.


2.) 05 Jun 2024 19:44:25
Id happily see us spend 20 mill on a player just not these two.


3.) 06 Jun 2024 12:47:09
I trust our Board is not going to waste or spend £40m on less they are pretty certain they are getting good value for money . I can’t believe that our Board is getting advice from fans to not over spend .
The worse over spend I can see would be money spent on bringing McKenna to Celtic . Club knew all about him in January and didn’t make a move . I don’t think he has substantially improved since then. Then he was slow awkward and fond of a strong tackle . His tackling in a hoops top wouldn’t go down well with Scottish referees.


 

 

05 Jun 2024 11:26:04
A couple of points

I read that the young lad Kelly and to a lesser extent Vata were open to talking about new Celtic contracts but as usual our Board were lowballing the kids, time for Brendan to step in and make this happen.
Also with the Euros taking place, I hope Celtic have players to bring in BEFORE they start, as otherwise getting players in will probably have to wait until end Auguat which is not good.

Timalloy

1.) 05 Jun 2024 11:35:44
Tim we don't know what they've been offered maybe it's a playing time guarantee they're looking for. Iam sure if they were good enough they'd have played more. maybe a good pre season an they kick on presuming they sign. or they go to a small English club or abroad and vanish l8ke a few we know.


2.) 05 Jun 2024 13:26:53
Timalloy,
I noticed you recently put up a post on the Sevco SPFL page.
It’s their only post in the last 10 days.
I thought they were having technical difficulties. ?.


3.) 05 Jun 2024 13:34:49
It's always nice to get business done early but if we're going to sign anybody at the Euros they won't be available until later on anyway so don't see it making much difference.


4.) 05 Jun 2024 13:50:05
We all need to take a breath and not believe anything we read regarding what Celtic are or aren't offering players.
We should all know by now that nearly all of these so called reports come from Sevco loving people and will do all they can to make Celtic look bad.


5.) 05 Jun 2024 14:29:44
It’s strange how many Celtic fans are so up to date with football valuations that they are prepared to blame the Celtic Board for low balling youngsters as regarding how much Celtic could pay in wages .
I have no idea if Celtic are low balling youngsters this season but history shows us that in the past if the Celtic Board were guilty of anything it was paying all new players signing professional contracts with Celtic too much . If we had been low balling them, Celtic could move them on after our manager decided they were not going to make it at Celtic . We continuously have up to 10 mostly young players, on a not wanted list and we cannot move them on because the clubs who rate the players good enough for them, or not going to match the wages they are currently on at Celtic.


6.) 05 Jun 2024 15:56:21
@Buzz Yes I posted about Real Madrid and Barcelona wanting their new signings lol
Sad thing is some sevvie fans believe all that guff coming from the Scottish press
Buzz they only post when they have good news, no good news they hide away.


7.) 05 Jun 2024 16:23:50
We can't even recruit a head of recruitment and that's since February? So I think new players coming in will be done the Celtic way ( wait until the last day of the window and take what dross that's left) Good old board.


 

 

03 Jun 2024 09:31:31
I read somewhere that the bold Pedro was not taking an active role in any of our transfer dealings, good thing you may say, but take Idah for example, whoever sanctioned his loan without putting in a transfer fee should be fired, at least Pedro would have tied Idah into a buy out clause which benefitted Celtic that's what he does well, now Norwich hold all the aces.

Timalloy

1.) 03 Jun 2024 11:46:20
Not sure if a transfer option was part of the loan Tim? As often the case with Celtic, it was a last-minute deadline day arrangement.
Not sure if the player himself was keen on a permanent move either but maybe after sampling the highs of the past few months he might be tempted and maybe a player plus ££ could be possible.


2.) 03 Jun 2024 12:03:53
Tim am certain there reason was there was no time left in the window to negotiate a buy option. still poor management tho.


3.) 03 Jun 2024 12:15:14
Tim the fact there was no buy option agreed with norwich is a dereliction of duty and if they haven't already left the building (young lawwell? ) then they are not fit for purpose and should be held accountable.
There literally is nothing that can excuse it as a fee of about 4m would probably have been agreed.
I think if norwich can somehow hold on to the lad sargent then idah will definetly be on the move. If sargent moves to the EPL which is being talked about then they will probably try hold on to him.
It will also come down to idah himself, he will have options but if celtic make a fair bid and he wants to return then we will get him.

Mally is correct, there was not enough time to fully negotiate a contract as it was done at last minute.

I have mentioned this before on here. I read an article were Rodgers was speaking about the Idah transfer. He claimed that the signing had nothing to do with our recruitment team and that he had received a phonecall from his agent saying he was available. This happened near the close of the window and Rodgers said he remembered Idah from when he broke through at Norwich.

If it had not been for that phonecall we would have likely lost the league as our recruitment team and directors had failed miserably in the January transfer window.

Personally speaking I think more heads should roll and the recruitment team were not the only ones at fault.

I'm maybe guilty of mis-reading things but Idah didn't exactly fill me with confidence he wants to come to Celtic post cup final, going by his comments. Very non committal. I appreciate though the reality is it's subject to negotiations with Norwich and the player.

{Ed007's Note - What did you expect him to say? His contract with Celtic was up, he's contracted to Norwich again and what if the new Norwich manager wants him, what if the move to Celtic doesn't happen for whatever reason, maybe the price will be £9m like Sutton - a guy that blasted Idah when he came in - thinks.
The press blew it out of proportion and Celtic fans took the bait, it's the usual type of message you get when a players loan ended, if you look back you'll probably find the same kind of message from guys like Edouard

Imagine him saying that he wanted a move to us after the final, what message does that send to the club and the fans of the club that own him. Hecwas their player again after the final whistle, so neither him nor Celtic have a real say in what happens now, it is down the Norwich.

The reality is the new manager will assess him and if he fits into his plan, he will stay there, no matter what he wants.

They will put a high price on him if they want him to stay, as we would and item do. It is out of our hands.

I think BR and his team will have that in mind and are looking at alternatives.

Fair play Ed re Idah. Point taken ?.

{Ed007's Note - ???

Hi all hope your doing well.

I remember when we signed Idah, Verona were in the driving seat, and the deal fell through as Norwich insisted in no option to buy. We agreed to the terms to get the deal over the line.

Really don't want this turning into another mcginn saga lol

Hope you are keeping well awesome people!

Wow, it's started already and we're only a couple of days into June.

I read somewhere that the bold Pedro was not taking an active role in any of our transfer dealings, good thing you may say, but take Idah for example, whoever sanctioned his loan without putting in a transfer fee should be fired, at least Pedro would have tied Idah into a buy out clause which benefitted Celtic that's what he does well, now Norwich hold all the aces.

Timalloy, As we aproached the finals days of January window wanting a striker, Celtic found out that an Italian Club were trying to sign Idah but deal was stalled because the Italians and Norwich couldn’t agree on right to buy which Italians wanted to add and Norwich didn’t and certainly on their terms . Celtic stepped in with a straight forward loan agreement and Thank God got the loan agreed . Without it we probably wouldn’t have won either SPL or SC .
The Board, sometimes isn’t to blame for not getting best deal through, other club and player have a say toon.

Why would a non-executive Chairman of a PLC board have any dealings or say in transfers of the Football club?
It astounds me that people still think he has any kind of say in transfers let alone think that Michael Nicholson would be happy to have someone meddle in his job.

Guys the EFL clubs have bigger budgets than Celtic also higher wage structure.
£8m in England is middle of the road as down there players go for twice that.
Even Norwich with their 20,000 ground have a bigger budget than us, and they know EFL clubs watched Idah last season and could take a punt at £8m.

Guys only point I was making was Norwich were happy to sell him for £4m plus but now they see a way of doubling their asking price, they are chancing their arm
Edouard is a good shout as is Miovski
We have options tell Norwich to take a hike.

He had relatives in Penilee and he used to come roaring around the streets in his souped up sports car then park outside the Penilee shops, naturally all the young boys surrounded his car, and the bold Mo Jo loved all the attention.
Next day papers ran story "My hell by Maurice Johnston, everywhere I go I am hounded by fans, I cannot get a minutes peace"

I just don't get some posters on here pushing Kelleher and Eduoard
Their clubs want £20m each (some posters think clubs will quote us less because we are Celtic, aye right)
Then there is their wages Odsonne quoted as earning £90k weekly
Kelleher won't be far off that either
Even if Celtic broke their wage structure and offered £50k that is still a long way short for players to accept, anyway circa £40m for just two players, there goes our ENTIRE transfer budget.

@Troy if I read stadium plan correct your tickets are for Lower North Stand (the old Jungle for old guys like me lol)
You should be OK as stadium roof wraps all the way around, although if windy the rain might blow in otherwise you are good to go.
